Jack B. Yeats: being a true, impartial view of his pictorial & dramatic art, wherein is discovered the author's sense of the unusual excellence of the astonishing handiwork of this singular artist ; how be became possessed of a quick and eager understanding of the same ; and his sudden purpose to publish his knowledge thereof abroad, as likewise to exhibit his diligent study of it and his surpassing wonder thereat ; wherein also is animadverted, excogitated & perpended the truth and quality of this unparalleled artist's pictorial observations ; the rare valour and solemn intent of his plays for the toy stage and his divers inventions for the delight of all those who keep youth ever in their hearts ; the discourse adorned with a portrait of the artist when a child, by his father, and a surprising chart of Pirate Island drawn by the cunning and subtile master hand of Jack B. Yeats, ex-pirate and re-discoverer of the land of romance
